Justin Kurtz (born January 14, 1977) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the EHC Black Wings Linz of the Austrian Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

Kurtz was drafted 84th overall by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, but never played for them. In fact, Kurtz's NHL debut did not come until the 2001–02 NHL season with the Vancouver Canucks after spending three seasons with the Manitoba Moose. He played 27 regular season games, scoring 3 goals and 8 points in what turned out to be his only season in the National Hockey League.

He spent another season with Manitoba before moving to Europe in 2003, playing in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga for the Krefeld Pinguine in a two-year spell. In 2005, he moved to the 2nd Bundesliga with EHC Wolfsburg Grizzly Adams, who were aiming to regain a place in the DEL having been relegated the previous season. However, they were unsuccessful and Kurtz returned to North America with the Worcester Sharks.

In 2007, Kurtz moved to Italy, signing with HCJ Milano Vipers. After one year he left the club and moved to Nordsjælland Cobras of Denmark's Oddset Ligaen in 2008. Kurtz later enjoyed spells with Örebro HK in Sweden and Fischtown Pinguins of the German 2nd Bundesliga before joining the Black Wings.
